“The Poetry of Thought
is denser in its language, more disquieting in its arguments, more in line with Steiner’s stronger works, such as Heidegger
(1978) and many of the essays collected in No Passion Spent
(1996). Steiner’s overall subject here is the interlocked nature of poetic language and philosophical thought, and how the intellect manifests itself through this connection.” (Rain Taxi)
